BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Tuesday, 27 April 2010
My kid loves her treasures.  Long past that sweet age when toddlers put everything into boxes and bags, she still does it.  Her bedside table has three treasure boxes and the drawer is overflowing.  Bits of ribbon, acorns and pincecones, barrettes, photographs, crayons, stones, leaves...

I stopped into her classroom at school one day. All the kids' hooks have a basket above them. Each one was tidy.  Well, except one. Which was overflowing with feathers and shoes and paper, a trail which continued across the shelf into the space of the children on either side.
 That's my girl.

So these little pouches are for that sweet spirit of my daughter who sees beauty and value in every little thing.  Durable, big enough to hold a respectable pine cone, but not so big as to lose that special pebble.  Bright, fun and natural.
 Knit, felted (fulled, technically) and embellished with upcycled wool, needlefelting and embroidery.

I have a few stocked in the Etsy shop, along with the pattern itself, if you prefer to gather up your scraps and make one for your special little collector.

These are so lovely! I've had a collector in the household too...maybe a future naturalist!
